  • About

This unique cake for a wedding, anniversary or any other celebration features thin layers of dacquoise, kirsch-soaked génoise and a combination buttercream-pastry cream. The cake is then coated with dacquoise crumbs and finished with a ribbon.



Advance Preparations

Prepare Basler Dacquoise Sheet; use a large metal spatula to free it from the baking sheet, to lift under it and to remove it to a large rack to cool. If you are assembling dessert the next day, lift it back onto baking sheet after it is completely cool and cover it with aluminum foil.
